Socialite Zari Hassan spent the past three days in Kenya’s capital Nairobi on business.
According to reports there, the South Africa-based Ugandan smiled all the way to the bulk section of her bank after minting millions in a span of three days.
Zari who jetted out of the country on Saturday morning is reported to have left the country at least Ksh 2.5m, which is the equivalent of Uganda shillings Sh79.5m after a busy three days that saw her deliver on several business deals in perfect blend of business and pleasure.
A source privy to the detail intimated to a section of the press that Zari pocketed Ksh1.7 (Sh54m) from Fine Urban Interiors, a Kenyan Interior and Consultancy firm for her marketing deal.
Zari hit the ground running and spent her Thursday doing photos and videos to market Fine Urban’s Estate.
The estate is comprised of multi-million mansions with the finest architectural design, good finishing and offers the luxury desired by those who can afford it.
A source who brokered the deal which brought Zari to town confirmed that “she was paid Kshh1.7 million (Sh54m) for her services to come have shoots and review the mansion and by the way, it wasn’t easy getting her here. Convincing her about this project really took a lot of effort”.
She followed up with the All-White Part, which was filled to capacity with gate entrance set at Ksh2,000 (sh63,000). There were other categories too.
KSh200,000 (sh6.3m) was charged for the ballers, with VVIP going for KSh100,000 (Sh3.15) and VIP Sh50,000 (Sh1.6m) with all the tables taken and Zari reportedly pocketed Ksh 800,000 ( Sh25m) for the deal.
With a very busy schedule, journalists who had camped at Radisson Blu, where she resided did not get an opportunity to interview her.
Zari politely declined interview requests, stating that she was exhausted. She also cited lack of trust in the local media which she noted, has the tendency of twisting stories.
“People don’t really know that I am very shy in person. Besides, I don’t trust media, they like to twist stories,” Zari explained
It was the second time she was hosting the party in Kenya after another high-end event in August 2018
